The college you plan to attend will have both merit and department scholarships available. The BSHS Future Center compiles a list of national, state, and local scholarships that can be found on the Bend-La Pine School District (BLPS) scholarship list (see link below). Office of Student Access and Completion (OSAC) offers 450+ scholarships with one application. National search sites such as Fast Web, and Sally Mae give you the ability to search for thousands of scholarships. Select the "Scholarship List" link below for a list of national, state and local scholarships compiled by all area high schools.

Military

For students wishing to go straight from high school into the military, a call to one of our local recruiters is the best place to start. Meetings can be set up in the recruiting office or in the Future Center.

ROTC (Reserve Officer Training Core)

ROTC is offered at some colleges and is designed as officer training, while students are going to college. Once selected for a ROTC program most likely you will be offered either a full or partial scholarship. The ROTC department at the school you plan to attend will have detailed information about post-college commitments.

Academies

The Academies offer students a very prestigious education, one that is filled with rigor and regimentation. To admission process is arduous, but worth it, if this is the route for you.
